Just heard the tragic news. My thoughts are with Mary Ann and the family.I have very fond memories of Brad and feel I may have played a small part in Brad meeting Mary Ann way back in the Chelsea Street Pub Days.
Take care of each other,
It was my pleasure to meet and socialize with Brad and Mary Ann on a memorable cruise. I thoroughly enjoyed sharing experiences with him and kept in touch on a regular basis via e-mail communication.
What a shocker it was to receive the news from Mary Ann of his death. My deepest sympathy goes to all who mourn his passing.
With deepest sympathy,

In my career, You were a wonderful mentor and great inspiration, teaching ,always teaching and leading by example. As a friend, You were honest even when it wasn't what I hoped to hear, supportive, compassionate, and unwavering in loyalty.
As a father, I saw in you the role model I wanted to be for my children.
As a husband, I was in awe of, and envied the relationship and dedication to the woman ...you loved, more than anyone on this earth ,giving the example of what a truly strong and pure love is.
Brad Holcomb , I hope you know now ...just how much better you made everyone who was fortunate enough to know you. And though you always shrugged it off in humility when I had told you in the past. "Thank You"
My life would not have been as good with out you my friend, and I fear it will be a little dimmer without the light that perpetually shined from you.
May God Bless and comfort those of us you leave behind. - Christian Wilkinson
Brad was "the boy next door" (okay, down the block) and we were always at each others house during junior high. We walked to the school bus stop together everyday! The Brad that i knew was always trying to get me to laugh! but he had a sincere side too! What a good person he was! He and his horse, Preacher! He tried to teach me how to play football. i always ran the wrong direction! I went to my first formal dance with Brad as high school freshman. I'm sending this message to his kids on Father's Day, today! Your dad was a truly wonderful man! I'm so glad to have known him. I'm also sending loving thoughts to his wife, as I lost my husband 1 year ago. My heart is with you all!
Please know that today I said a prayer for you and your family. May God guide you and hold you every single day.
